Are Abbott oral nutritional supplements, tube feeds and powders clinically lactose free?

With the exception of Ensure Compact, Ensure Plus Advance, Ensure TwoCal, Ensure Shake and Enshake (reconstituted), Similac High Energy and PaediaSure Compact, all Abbott feeds are clinically lactose free.

Special note regarding lactose

In the absence of a legal definition or tolerance for making the claim “lactose free” in the UK for products other than infant formula, Abbott regards products containing less than 2000 mg lactose per litre (as fed) as being “clinically lactose free”. Therefore, Abbott feeds are not considered completely lactose free and hence are not suitable for patients with galactosaemia.

If you have any further queries about lactose content, please contact the Medical & Scientific Affairs Team by email via the Freephone Helpline (0800 252882), or in writing.

Healthcare professionals should always advise on the correct amount of food and fluid thickener to use to reach the desired consistency.
